UMRA (Upper Manistee River Association) has scheduled Tuesday, June 30th for our Deward restoration project. The site is where the sign has binoculars on it also maybe known as “bird watching binocular site.”

We would like to meet at the intersection of Manistee River Rd and 612 (there is a fire danger sign there). Please be prompt at 9:00 am.  We will then caravan to the site!  We have DNR approval, cedar posts ordered and tools will be supplied. We’ll need to remove all the current railings and posts, and replace them with over 200’ of new fence. You may want to bring work gloves, bug spray and sunscreen and a mask (if you wish to wear one).

If you would like to take the old fencing, it’s old and dry and would burn great if anyone needs/wants it. Please be prepared to do so.  Please contact Bill Dean, at his phone number 989-390-4278 or email if you are interested in volunteering! More hands make quick work!!! Thank you!
